The use of enzymes for cosmetic purposes dates back hundreds of years. Enzymes break down and dissolve proteins and are an excellent exfoliator. Plant enzymes, such as those found in pumpkin, soften and break down dead skin enough for it to be removed. A natural astringent pumpkin enzymes and fruit acids help to accelerate exfoliation without the oxidative and free radical stress associated with most peels. It's gentle, soothing and packed with vital nutrients and anti-oxidants. The high concentration of Vitamin A in the Pumpkin Peel provides a mild retinoic acid benefit which helps mediate receptor sites responsible for skin cell turnover.
The Pumpkin Enzyme contained in the Institut' DERMed Pumpkin Peel is a potent botanical enzyme derived from whole pumpkin. Processed through a freeze drying technology the pumpkin yields a natural fruit acid and enzyme concentrate that is used for exfoliating dead, dry skin cell layers and stimulates the generation of new skin cells. After an enzyme peel treatment the skin feels and looks smooth and radiant.
Pumpkin Enzymes can: digest impurities, exfoliate, refine, soothe, lighten, refresh, promote new cell growth, assist collagen production, reduce hyper-pigmentation, reduce fine lines, improve skin tone and texture and plump up skin. Now that’s amazing!
